eSciDoc Days 2010 in Copenhagen

19.10.2010
FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure and Max Planck Society (MPG) invite to the third eSciDoc Days / presentation of eSciDoc infrastructure and applications / users tell about their experiences

On November 16 and 17, 2010, the third eSciDoc Days will be held at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, Denmark. The event is held by FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure, and the Max Planck Society – Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL).

In a strategic partnership. the two organizations are developing an open source eResearch infrastructure for web-based scientific work in a multidisciplinary environment. eSciDoc supports the entire scientific value generation process, from the first idea to experiments, data analysis and evaluation, and the publication of the results.

The growing number of users who work with the eSciDoc software and develop applications that are based on it shows that eSciDoc is well accepted by the community. At this year‘s eSciDoc Days, existing applications from various scientific disciplines will be presented. Workshops and lectures with practical relevance will give a comprehensive overview of eSciDoc and how to employ it. Tutorials will give the participants the opportunity to familiarize themselves with installing the eSciDoc infrastructure and developing eSciDoc applications. There is also room to discuss future developments with the experts from FIZ Karlsruhe and the MPDL.

The keynote speakers at this year‘s eSciDoc Days will give an overview of current developments in scientific communication: Birte Christensen-Dalsgaard from the University of Copenhagen will hold a lecture on “The change of scholarly communication - and some consequences“ and Dr. Laurent Romary, INRIA & HUB-IDSL, will talk about “Outlining a scholarly workbench - publication and data as a continuum”.

The program of the eSciDoc Days 2010 is available at https://www.escidoc.org/; registration deadline: October 22, 2010.

About eSciDoc
eSciDoc was funded within the scope of the German e-Science Initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as a joint project of FIZ Karlsruhe and the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL)) until 2009. Afterwards, the partners opened the project for the interested scientific public and signed a Memorandum of Understandig about their further co-operation and the further development of the software. The entire eSciDoc software is available as open source under the Common Development and Distribution License (CCDL).
About FIZ Karlsruhe
FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure is a not-for-profit organization with the public mission to make sci-tech information from all over the world publicly available and to provide related services in order to support the national and international transfer of knowledge and the promotion of innovations.
Our business areas:
• STN International – the world’s leading online service for research and patent information in science and technology
• KnowEsis – innovative e-Science solutions to support the process of research in all its stages, and throughout all scientific disciplines

• Databases and Information Services – Databases and science portals in mathematics, computer science, crystallography, chemistry, and energy technology

FIZ Karlsruhe is a member of the Leibniz Association (WGL) which consists of 86 German research and infrastructure institutions.

About the Max Planck Digital Library
The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) is a service institution within the Max Planck Society. Its aim is to develop a modern electronic infrastructure for supplying scientists with information; secure, long-term data storage; publication of research results following the principles of open access; and ditital, web-based research and collaboration.
The MPDL has the following tasks:
• To ensure the basic supply of the Max Planck institutes with electronic publications and publication databases.
• To assist the Max Planck institutes in creating digital and web-based research environments.
• To provide a repository for publications by the Max Planck institutes and to assist them, if necessary, in the digital editing of scientific raw data.

• To support the president of the Max Planck Society within the scope of the Max Planck Society’s open access policy and other tasks of scientific political relevance.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
